What Is The Difference Between The Symptoms Of Vertigo And Symptoms Of Orthostatic Hypotension
Motion vs. Lighthead: Vertigo is defined as "the sensation of motion in the absence of motion." this will lead to the feeling that either you are moving in some way (spinning is common) or your environment is moving. People with orthostatic hypotension do not typically complain of motion, rather they feel as if they are lightheaded or as if they might faint. ...Read more
Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more

I was diagnosed with orthostatic hypotension about 6 years ago. Lately I've been experiencing more often dizziness, headaches, and vision going black.
Not if well controld: Sorry for the misspelling up top Laura but I only had 20 letters to use so I had to make an EXECUTIVE decision to violate one of my rule on always making sure my paper had NO spelling mistakes before turning it in to my teacher! LOL. If a person with TRUE MSA were well controlled (how's that?) with fluids, compression stockings, appropriate meds, etc. Then, folks can stand without being dizzy. ...Read more
My 13 yr old c/o dizziness when getting up too quickly. Is she too young to experience orthostatic hypotension? What else could be causing this?
Could my headaches and dizziness be orthostatic hypotension, I've been experiencing it on and off for a year but gets worse for periods of time?
Not most likely: More likely causes out there for episodic causes of headaches with dizziness. Orthostatic hypotension isn't typically associated with headache, more lightheadedness. Intracranial hypotension is associated with headache but is positional, worse with standing and better with lying down, rather than "on and off...gets worse for periods of time." ...Read more
My EKG showed sinus bradycardia, possible Left atrial enlargement, RSR' or QR pattern in V1 suggests right ventricular conduction delay. I'm 39 y/o female with orthostatic hypotension & frequent dizziness, but otherwise healthy & a runner. Any concern?
I'm good with this: These little variations on the way in which the heartbeat is propagated are common and almost never mean anything. Your bradycardia is healthy if you are a runner. You may want to try a table tilt test to see whether you have more tendency to be orthostatic than other folks; if you stay well-hydrated and haven't had syncopal episodes from it, it may not be a problem. ...Read more
Semantics: They mean the same thing. Postural hypotension theoretically could mean any change in posture that induces low blood pressure, but in reality this is only seen when assuming a standing-up position from seated or lying down. Orthostatic hypotension describes the same phenomenon. ...Read more

Symptoms of Orthostatic hypotension with 10 year old scrotal hernia. Are they connected? Is it serious?
In someone with orthostatic hypotension, how long do symptoms like headache last? Permanently until treated, 10 minutes after standing, 5 minutes...?
Up to 5 minutes.: The symptoms should normally last up to 5 minutes. However the patient has to be very careful and whenever he gets the symptoms of hypotension he should immediately lie down to avoid loss of consciousness. This will also help getting rid of dizziness and headache. It is always better to treat the cause of hypotension. ...Read more
I'm suffering from orthostatic hypotension my dr said to increase salt intake but my BP is 140/93, is there anything else I can do to relieve symptoms?
My blood pressure is 112/50 and I'm having some orthostatic hypotension symptoms. Do I have low blood pressure?
Blood pressure: In general 112/50 is normal. If you have orthostatic symptoms, it could be related to the baseline lowish blood pressure complicated by hypovolemia, venous insufficiency or other conditions. It would be a good idea to see your doctor and have the orthostatic symptoms evaluated. ...Read more

I'm 28have orthostatic hypotension and vertigo I weigh 194 at 5"2 my blood pressure keeps dropping any suggestions all test came back normal. No disease?
Yes disease: At 5'2" and 194 pounds, a person has at least one major disease in need of evaluation and treatment... obesity (unless the excess weight is muscle). Her primary care doctor can check further to see why the obesity is there, and to see if there is a hormonal imbalance. The orthostatic hypotension may or may not be related (either directly or indirectly) to obesity. ...Read more
Had median arcuate ligament release surgery. 2 month follow up duplex US still shows severe high grade stenosis of celiac artery as well as significant velocities of SMA. Can that cause orthostatic hypotension, dizziness, and abd pain?
Yes, but rare: Anxiety can have a myriad of effects, and it could cause this. Basically it is a fall in blood pressure due to positional changes, and would be more common for anxiety to raise blood pressure than reduce it, but it could be rarely implicated. It can have many causes from innocuous sources to serious medical problems. If occurs often see your md to rule out problems. ...Read more
Please clarify: That's like asking, "How do I not ruin casseroles? " It's only the beginning, not the end. How orthostatic? How hypotensive? Need frequency, duration, precipitating circumstances and numbers: Blood pressures, heart rates, etc. You can't possibly expect a 10-word post with no information to elicit a useful answer. ...Read more
Orthostatic hypotension — also called postural hypotension — is a form of low blood pressure that happens when you stand up from sitting or lying down.
In a series of 100 patients treated with levodopa, 25 developed significant orthostatic hypotension (ann intern med. 1970;72 (5):751-752. Doi:10.7326/0003-4819-72-5-751). ...Read more

As a consequence, the affected person becomes uncomfortably dizzy, or lightheaded for ...Read more
